We recently saw the reveal of Adam and Lisa's Melbourne weather board home. They had the brief/rule of a 'Wow Moment' in each room, use of mirrors and wallpaper and they seemed really happy with the results.
While I'm thinking about wallpaper I thought I'd share my tips on where and how to use wallpaper successfully in your home.
Tips on how to use wallpaper successfully in your home without creating overwhelming spaces;
- Behind a bedhead. This gives you a clear direction in dressing the bed and rest of the room; the wallpaper should cement the rooms "theme" and introduce the colours, pattern and even textures you use in the room.

- Mural style; this type of wallpaper is becoming increasingly popular, particularly as it can be personalized using your own images and printed locally (a simple Google search will result in an array of opportunities)
- The wallpaper you select gives you direction when selecting the colour palette to then draw you through the house that tells a story and has a pleasant flow
- Back of cupboards/cabinets. This can add great interest and pops of colour without needing "decorate" an entire wall.
